My sentence was worded backwards. The server sites on the socket
*until* 2 idle seconds or when the client closes the connection,
whichever comes first.

I'm interpreting the lingering_close() function in http_main.c

I was getting serious performance problems in my testing of the hybrid
server on 2.2.5 even with almost no server load (factor of 10 loss on
my little network at home). 2.2.7 fixed them for me. I think this is
the reason.

Unfortunately, Red Hat 6.0 ships with 2.2.5 right now.
